Let’s Talk: The Sunflower Episode (Craig Of The Creek)

Good Morning everyone, hope your Wednesday is going splendid! My Wednesday morning had a bit of a trip over, but it’s good now, I made some coffee and I’m feeling good not stressed out, not that I was super stressed out or anything, I was testing out my headphone mic to be able to record a new podcast episode later today and it was kind of getting to me a bit, but it’s working now and hopefully it continues like that, I’m starting to think I should invest in an actual, but affordable microphone, I almost got one, but then I didn’t…..ANYWAY moving on, today I wanted to discuss upon one of my favorite cartoon shows, you might’ve heard me talking about it before, but I really do love this show and so I wanted to talk about one of the recent episodes that I watched a few days ago,

I haven’t been watching it as much these days, so I was trying to catch up on the episodes that I had missed that were new and this little cute thing of an episode is now one of my favorites, like you have to watch it okay! Now you might’ve taken a gander of what episode we’ll be touching on, but for a reminder we’ll be taking a look at The Sunflower episode from Craig Of The Creek, some of you might remember and some of you might not remember, but I’ve spoken about Craig Of The Creek a few times here, now if you never watched this show or maybe heard of it, I would definitely recommend checking it out!

Before we get into the episode, I just want to say that when it comes to movies and shows, I’ve stated many times how, I’m not the best reviewer of them, like I don’t watch a show or movie to critique it and what I mean by that is I don’t normally analyze it to it’s plot and story or anything like that, because…..that’s not what I look for, also it’s not really my specialty, I just watch shows and movies for enjoyment and if I have thoughts about it after watching them, that I have in mind or I feel something maybe didn’t connect with me then I will sometimes share my thoughts based on that, but how normal show and movie critics look at these things…..I don’t do that at least I don’t ever feel I do it in the way they do, if that makes sense!? If I enjoy something I talk about it and if I don’t I on occasion talk about it!

Craig Of The Creek though, is one of my favorite shows and so when I speak about it, it’s always in good light, I never have anything bad to say about it, because I genuinely always enjoy each episode I watch and The Sunflower episode was an episode I wasn’t expecting to get…..to be fair I didn’t know what to expect from this episode, I saw the title and it automatically caught my attention and I became very curious to what that episode could possible be about, buuut I had to watch the other ones first because I like to watch things in order, I prefer anyway is what I’m saying!

When I did eventually get to this episode…..I for one, was super excited because I really missed watching this show, originally I searched for it on Youtube Tv because I wanted to watch the 5 day event episode titled Capture The Flag where Craig and all the other kids at the Creek we’re going to try and stop a ruler from the other side of the creek from taking over there side…..I have yet to watch that one, but I feel when I do it’s going to be quite the episode!!

Back to the Sunflower episode…..I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was excited to find out what story it was going to tell and let me tell you……it was an emotional one alright, like I was not prepared to get all up in my feeling with it, but I did, well I was super close, but I felt it, I felt it very deeply, I’m just realizing that if I go into the episode fully, it’s going to be a very long post, so I think I figured out what my podcast episode will be about later……me explain and giving thoughts to this episode and what my reaction was when I watched it and I’m going to give you all a disclaimer, be prepared for some energetic energy with this one, now it might not actually be like that, but just in case it is, just know you were warned…..but this was a very adorable episode and I can’t wait to talk about it in my podcast episode, seriously, I’m super excited about it lol!

Now this post will be up in a moment, however it might be scheduled to go up at a bit of a later time today in the time your reading this, so that way I can record the episode and share it on here for you guys to listen to, if by any chance, this post is seen before I get the chance to share the episode with it, just know that it will be updated with the episode added in once it’s recorded and uploaded, so stay tuned for that!! I hope you guys don’t mind the way this post is, if you’re reading it without the episode to listen to for the moment and I hope you enjoy the episode once it’s done, see you all in a couple of hours, more or less!!

Let’s Talk: Teen Titans GO (Night Begins To Shine Episodes)

How’s everyone’s Friday going so far!? Alright so originally I was going to give my thoughts on the Teen Titans Movie Special The Night Begins To Shine 2, however as I was writing this post, I realized there’s some stuff I need to explain first just so it’s not confusing, so we’re gonna do this in parts and try and explain things as best as possible!!

Now you might be wondering what is Teen Titans Go!? Well I don’t know really…..I guess you can call it a spin off of the original Teen Titans show, but more obnoxious, weird and just not Teen Titans…..that being said, it’s not that bad of a show if i’m being honest, there are some episodes that I like, some I don’t mind and some that I could care less for, the good thing about this show though is, it knows what it is and it never tries to be like it’s original counter part which had more of a serious tone to it, there was a lot more action in that show then there is in Teen Titans Go and the story of it, you just connected to very well….Teen Titans Go on the other hand well….

It’s just full of nonsense most of the time, but for some reason….it works, I guess and I think that’s what the writers of the show wanted, they didn’t want another Teen Titans show and so they took aspects to what they originally created with Teen Titans and turned it into what you wouldn’t expect the show to be and so instead of it being a serious toned show and everything in between that we saw in Teen Titans, they made it more less serious and a little more out there and by out there, I mean it’s more randomized so a lot of the stuff that goes on, can makes sense, but also doesn’t have to makes sense, they had a little more fun with it pretty much!!

That aside, today we’re going to be talking about the first not really episode to introduce The Night Begins To Shine which was the episode 40% 40% 20% (yes that’s the actual episode name) now this might get a little confusing so please bare with me as I try and explain in the best way possible although we’re not talking about the movie right now,

I’ll explain it a little so that way when we do get to The Movie Special it’ll make a bit more sense….so the reason the movie special is called the Night Begins To Shine 2……is because we don’t get to the “first” part until the second part of The Night Begins To Shine…..I hope you’re still following,

It makes sense if you’ve watched the two part episodes, but to put it in the shortest way possible, 40% 40% 20% is pretty much like an intro preview before the introduction to the first real part of the Night Begins To Shine episode, hope this is all making sense so far!? To go into the preview intro episode, we have Cyborg one of main Teen Titans who is a little obsessed with this song called: The Night Begins To Shine by the band B.E.R.

(Who are actual artists, by the way) in this episode we’re pretty much being introduced to the song first, long story short the rest of The Titans (Robin, Beast Boy, Raven and Starfire) are kind of becoming a little tired of the song,

They try and tell cyborg to give it a little rest and listen to something else, Cyborg loving the song too much doesn’t want to and so the Titans ask him what’s so special about it, he explains and then takes them all to this alternative world where they discover the land of B.E.R. (that’s what I call it) they admire it for a while, trying to figure out how them being there is possible and Cyborg tells them that “Music has the power to transform”

That’s kinda the motto of these specific episodes, but Robin then stops the song bringing them all back to their world and telling Cyborg he gotta stop playing the song so much, the rest of the Titans agree and tell him that he can’t do the simplest things without it, Robin even puts him to the test and doesn’t allow him to go on their mission with them until he can prove that he doesn’t need the song to do things, a little later on in the episode the rest of the Titans ends up getting captured by one of the villains and it’s up to Cyborg to go and save them, how does he do it!?

By becoming inspired by……a Hawk building a nest for itself while singing the song that Cyborg is obsessed with, which gives him that sense of encouragement that he needs, to save his friends, he defeats the villain even though they destroyed his cassette tape, but it’s okay because his friends realized the importance of the song to Cyborg and they help him to free them and that is the first preview of the Night Begins To Shine, before the actual episode!!

I like this episode, because not only do we get a song that’ll be re introduced a few times, but we also get to see a different version of the Teen Titans characters, that I feel is similar to the art style of the original Teen Titans, not saying their the same, it’s just cool to see the transitioned art styles within these episodes!! Now although I like this episode,

I’d say the second first real episode of the Night Begins To Shine, i’d say that’s my favorite one, because this time, not only is the song back, but we also meet B.E.R. for the first time and we get to go more into the story and world of B.E.R and learn more on the origins of the song as well and learn how powerful it actually is……so that’s the “first” part of The Night Begins To Shine, well the introduction of it anyway, the second part to the episode,

Which is the first part, explaining it all, that episode will be discussed in the next part of this post and from there we will be discussing the movie special, I might combined the two, have the the second episode be part 2 of this post and just have the movie be the third and final part of everything…..we’ll see and work it out from there, I just felt that I needed to explain a bit, before going straight into the movie special, it would’ve been confusing had I not decided to do that, hopefully it made sense, but if I don’t get to the second part today just know it’ll be up soon, until then, I hope you’re all enjoying the day and I hope you all have a nice weekend!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Let’s Talk: Craig Of The Creek (Musical Special)

How’s everyone doing this Wednesday afternoon, hope you’re all well and doing alright…..now before we get to our topic here, I just want to let some thoughts out first, I don’t know what kind of day today is, but I just feel my stress levels are trying to peak their way through today for some reason,

So to keep at a calm level, I thought i’d talk about a specific episode to one of my favorite shows that I actually spoke about before on here called Craig The Creek and give some thoughts on it, in this post we’re going to be focused on the musical special episode of it, titled:

This special is about a week old now, but when I first saw it, I was just loving it, Craig Of The Creek is already a great show with it’s regular episodes, but this musical special was probably one of my favorite episodes to watch, it’s just so fun and full of song, I mean who doesn’t love that!?

Before I go on and give some thoughts on it, i’m just going to state that when it comes to tv shows and episodes from those tv shows, i’m not expert, so i’m not going to go into “critic mode” or anything like that, I just want to share my thoughts on it and try and explain what I loved about it!!

Now to give a brief summary of some sort…….it’s a musical episode so it’s a little different towards your regular COTC episodes, however this special was just very entertaining to me, every song was just wonderfully done, love JP’s high notes, he really went for it!! I also like when the Creek kids sang in harmony together it was nice, this whole episode was just full of a good time, you can tell that each song had some kind of inspiration from certain musicals, some that I know and some I might know, but might not.

To give you guys a little look into what the episode was, we have Craig and his friends, but manly Craig, stuck inside his home, wishing he was at the Creek, but isn’t able to go due to it raining cats and dogs outside and so the whole episode he’s having to use his imagination or get creative on what kind of things him and his friends would be doing at the Creek if it wasn’t raining……and so you see within the episode, he imagines finding a random key and wondering what it goes to and wanting to know the origins of it.

Him and his friends are going around and asking everyone they know at the creek (not really) what the key goes to and where it came from, things like that, but reminder (not that you forgot) it’s a musical based episode and so they’re pretty much singing everything they do in it, there are some speaking moments, but the animations and weird moments that happened within the special is just something I can’t even explain, I mean MORTIMER……even sings and for those who don’t know who Mortimer is,

Well he’s Kelsey’s parakeet bird, but Mortimer isn’t just a regular bird, there’s more to him than meets the eye, he’s Kelsey’s life pet companion, her partner in crime, he’s always with Kelsey!! he may be small, but that parakeet is a true warrior……I know that probably sounded weird, but it’s the truth,

He never leaves her side unless it’s important, but the point is, it can get interestingly weird at times, but in good way i’d say, I loved everything about it, it’s just a good episode and definitely a favorite, there’s a few songs from it that I like a lot, but overall, the whole special was just the best!!

I’m glad it exist, but that’s pretty much it, I don’t want to spoil the episode too much, hopefully I didn’t spoil it, but if you like adventurous type of cartoons that pretty much always almost breaks the fourth wall within certain episodes definitely check it out, it’s the best in my opinion and this specific episode was just a hoot to watch I loved every moment of it!!

Since we’re on the topic of Craig Of The Creek…….I went and recorded a video the other day talking about some of my favorite episodes from the series, mainly the new episodes that came out recently, i’m probably going to do a part 2 not sure when though, but eventually, I haven’t yet posted it, i’ll be doing that later tonight, when I do though expect to have this post be updated with the link later on as well, but that is it for this post……

Update: I didn’t actually post the video the day I said I would, but I did post it, sorry for the later update sharing the video though, if you want to check it out, you can find it here: Favorite Craig Of The Creek Episodes
